Recently, I purchased a few guinea pigs, and Rista, poor darling, thinks that the little squeaks and the smells and she cleans their faces and bums, she thinks they're her babies, or babies in general. It's sad, because Rista was never crazy about being a mum, but instinct is stronger. And even though she was spayed last year, she's exploded in hives, it's so horrible!! It doesn't bother her any, but she does get a bit itchy and hot. I bought her bubble gum flavoured antihistamine and have been giving her child doses, her tummy lumps and blotches cleared up, but her back and face are getting more lumpy, I'm afraid I'll wake up tmo and she'll be all "Igor" again, it's so upsetting to see, even though she's really ok.
Right now she's stressed out and pacing and panting, poor baby, I'm hoping it will pass soon.
